To be honest, that’s a loaded question. It’s been six months since my last blog post, yet it feels like so much less despite how much has happened since then. I suppose I can start by sharing that I recently got a promotion and am now working at a new property as the general manager of a residential condominium located in Miami Beach. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better welcome from my residents, in-house team, and corporate team members. I have learned so much about myself, and from those around me since I’ve been there, and I look forward to learning so much more. I’m also still attending school with my graduation date just around the corner which is super exciting. That brings me to my birthday which just passed in May. I was so happy to be able to spend it with my family this year, including one of my nieces who I hadn’t seen in ages. It was the greatest gift I could have ever asked for. And as if that weren’t enough, the following week I got to check off one of the items on my bucket list… Sky Diving! What a liberating experience!!
But that’s not all, which brings me to the rebranding of Gift With A Pink Ribbon, Inc. What started as my personal blog, morphed into a non-profit organization focused on bringing comfort to patients undergoing chemotherapy treatments. This part of my journey has been great, but as the years have gone by, it became clear to me that Gift With A Pink Ribbon, Inc., the non-profit organization, needed a new name so that I could continue to share my personal journey under my original name of “Gift With a Pink Ribbon” without steering the focus away from our non-profits mission. So, without further ado, I welcome you to visit our new website, www.Knots4Comfort.com.
Yes, our name has changed but our mission remains the same, “to help cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy find comfort and warmth during their treatments”, and I know that with your continued support, we will be able to raise enough money this year to resume the production of our blankets.
It is with much gratitude that I thank all of you who have followed me since day one and inspired me to continue my journey living every moment to it’s fullest. And to those who have joined me along the way, I thank you as well because you have helped remind me of my purpose in life and for that I am eternally grateful.
With love & gratitude,
